Chanson d'Amour

From what you see in the media, you'd think that "old school" blogging was all about middle class birds shagging. Don't get me wrong, there was all that going on. But there was much, much more.

What you don't hear about are the blogs that described your ordinary working class geezers' experiences of sex. To put it bluntly, it weren't just the literary birds that were putting it about. Of course, the press couldn't give a bollock about the men's point of view as a man's sex life is not deemed newsworthy. But blogs like...

Rock Hard Alan's Blog
Derek From Behind
Long Dong Paul
Dogging Dave

and not forgetting my favourite...

Bit Of Rough Ray (a painter and decorator who described his exploits with a series of posh sorts whose interiors he was seeing to)

...all had merit and were a bloody good read.

They may not have had all those fancy words that got the ladies the book and TV deals but what the geezers lacked in finesse they certainly made up for in enthusiasm.

What are your memories of the old days?


  1. Pete the Plumber.

    With his hand firmly on the ballcock, he whipped out his plumber’s snake and unclogged my drain.

    I don’t have to tell you I was flushed with excitement!

  2. Roger and out.

  3. You forgot Infomaniac - it should go underneath Dogging Dave.

  4. Oh wow.
    I miss Uptown Pussy by that cat veterinarian in Manhattan...

    and some randy lawyer badgered the witnesses in Honour & Offer

    both were very well written and forthcoming

  5. MJ - He knows what's better than an Armitage Shanks!

    Rog - Ah, yes. The military man and his weapon of choice.

    Kaz - I think Dogging Dave has been featured on Filthy Friday. Recently he was an extra in The Men Who Stare At Goats.

    Donn - I remember those two from the 2003 Bloggies. Those were the days when they had all sorts of rude categories.

  6. Boris and his Johnson.

  7. Ah but were they high class call boys earning £400 per hour?

    Not that there is any such thing as 'high class call girls' either, just overpriced ones!

  8. Vicus - He's now changed the name to Dirty Mayor.

    Laura - But high class prostitutes have a more discerning class of client, don't you know! These are gentlemen, not the scum you get kerb crawling.
